Athlete Quotes - Women's 400m Semi-Finals

Shareese Woods – Winner Women’s 400M (Heat 1)
 
On her prelim race:
“I got disqualified last year. I am being very careful this year to not step on the line. I’ve been training for this all year. I just wanted to come out and execute like I do in practice.”
 
On Saturday’s final:
“Naturally this is the hardest team to make. It is just a real testimate to my fitness to make it through to the finals. Just being next to Sanya Richards and Natasha Hastings – it’s going to be very fast. No matter if I win or I lose, I know I am going to run faster than I did today.”
 
Keshia Baker – Fourth Place Women’s 400M (Heat 1)
 
On her prelim race:
“I came out hard today and really tried to be quicker through the back stretch. With about 120 meters left to go I saw that I was in fifth and I knew only the top four advanced so I just gave it everything I had. God was with me today and I’m moving on to the final.”
 
Sanya Richards – Winner Women’s 400M (Heat 2)
 
On her prelim race:
“I felt good. Today was better than yesterday. The wind was so strong on the backstretch  that I really had to keep my focus on that third 100 meters but then I was able to shut it down pretty good at the end.”
